Author
Sugihara, Toshihiro
Abstract
Impairments and disabilities of forty-two bilateral lower extremity amputees resistered at the Okayama Prefectural Rehabilitation Center from 1967 to 1983 were analysed. Sixty-nine percent of the amputation were related to trauma. The incidence of amputation due to vascular disorders were lower in Okayama than in Western countries. Sixty percent of the cases ranged from twenty to sixty years of age. The average age of the amputees was lower than that in Western coutries. In eighty-seven percent of the amputees, skin erosion and sweating were major complaints. Therefore, the development of sweat-absorbable sockets is an important project. Lock or safety knee joints were used for A/K prostheses in order to obtain good knee stability. Of six high level amputees, three were confined to a wheel chair. Thirty-nine amputees were able to walk with prostheses. One third of the cases had no job after prosthetic training. Eighty-one percent of all cases were married. The rate of employment and marriage was much higher than in Western countries. From these findings, it can be said that bilateral lower extremity amputees are rehabilitated fairly well in Okayama.
